Overall Experience: My first semester was tough. It was hard to make friends at first but once the semester took off all my classmates were very nice. We all supported each other by making study groups to ensure each of us would success. The WELL is a great fitness center that is utilized by a majority of the students. It is also a great place to meet new people and workout together. The campus itself is a very calming environment. All the trees are very beautiful throughout the campus.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at my school has been good so far. I love the campus, it is full of trees and it is a modern school. The facilities and the resources are great and always helpful. On the other hand, more money needs to be put into the health and science programs at my school.

Overall Experience: I think that the ability to commute to school is a great option, in many cases the cost of housing on campus can be outrageous and unless you work a minimum of two jobs or have help with paying bills as a student you cannot afford to live on your own as an eighteen year old. Sac State also has an amazing GE Honors Program which was a huge help in registering for classes and offers a cohort based system which not only challenges you in classes, but also allows students to make lasting friendships and be involved in their campus community. I really enjoyed my time as an undergrad at Sac State and only marked them down because the all of my undergrad was paid via student loans, some more scholarship opportunities would be great!

Overall Experience: It does have it's good sides like the college clubs and organizations that are welcoming to all students but some things like classes not being available and especially class selection really made it difficult my first year.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Sacramento State- I have only attended one semester online but my teachers worked with me (I gave birth to my daughter a month before the semester ended). They were helpful and everything was easily navigable online.

Overall Experience: Classes didn't transfer and test scores were lost

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love California State University, Sacramento a lot ! Due to the fact it's home and I have made a lot of connections, especially for nursing. Our schools black organizations are really fun and very inspiring. The professors I have encountered so far, are there to help you. However, it is home and I love to travel. So, going to school in a different state would be nice, to experience new people, ideas, food.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: the school is very safe when it comes to these issues. they provide information and support if anything ever happens

Off-Campus Housing: there is always places to move in off campus. The cost can be pricy for a one bedroom but cheaper than dorms. some could be close to campus but usually more expensive. But either way there is always transportation to use to get to the school.

Party Scene: there are many parties happening throughout the school year, you must know people to attend or you can always go downtown and go to clubs. there so much fun and worth it

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a variety of food places in the city. Especially downtown there are many things to pick from. its great over all

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is great in the dorms and around campus. when they smell or think someone is under the influence they check and make sure they are following the rules which is very good.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The school does have a variety of choices to eat. Panda is always great as well as logos or jamba juice. The value of the other places i think is too high. don't have many promotions or coupons.

The meal plan is worth it because most students don't have time to eat, but you do get tired of the food.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
